The Punch La Isla has arrived on the island.


Habanos S.A.’s latest Edición Regional for its home country of Cuba is the Punch La Isla, Spanish for the island. The cigar comes in the robusto vitola, which measures 4 7/8 inches long (124mm) with a 50 ring gauge.

This is the fifth Edición Regional produced for Cuba:

It’s that largest release of the quintet, with 10,000 individually numbered, slide-lid boxes of 10 cigars produced.

A representative from Habanos S.A. did not reply to questions about pricing for the cigar.

Update (July 23, 2019) — A source in Havana tells halfwheel that the Punch La Isla is selling for 115 CUC per box, which is equivalent to US $115, though with exchange fees, works out to around $132.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
